The true keystone of committing to yourself is very simple: Learn to love all of who you are, flaws and all.

In January, we are entering the year 2017 (2+0+1+7= 10, then reduce down to a single digit, 1+0=1) which breaks down to the number 1. For those of you who felt you couldn’t function in the year 2016 and couldn’t think clearly, the fog is lifting.
No matter how you may choose to celebrate, may you find time to relax and ENJOY the magic of the season with friends, family, and community. As we head into 2017 together, please know how much we appreciate you our dear readers, advertisers, and supporters! Thank YOU!
“One of the guiding mottos when envisioning Bodhi’s new form was to find a way to create an appealing balance drawn from the Transcendentalist’s values of wisdom, beauty, and truth.”
